image for Joe Potts makes Legal History
Joe Potts yesterday. Working himself into another frenzy.

Madcap Piscean Joe Potts 64, from Kent has made legal history today by becoming the first British Born subject to gain the right, in principle at least, to apply for Political Asylum.

Speaking from his home in Pinewood Road, Bromley, Potts said to our reporter, "To be honest I was sick of only foreigners being given political asylum. My father didn't fight in 3 world wars just for the indigenous population to be put to the back of the queue. Doesn't the government think we might enjoy a bit of asylum too?"

Norman Art the press spokesman for Bromley Council was unavailable for comment yesterday but his attractive and extremely busty wife Brenda sent this e mail to the Bromley Gazette late last night.

"Although I shouldn't speak on behalf of my husband I can say that he believes Mr Potts to be a total Barm Cake but that Bromley Council are willing to look at, in principle at least,his claim for political asylum."

The large chested wife added "I am going to get in dreadful trouble for this and will probably be spanked to within an inch of my life, but to be honest it's all that keeps the marriage fresh nowadays".

This is not the first time barmy Joe has set a legal precedent. In October 2004 he became the first man to be granted the right to have a Hysterectomy.

Talking at the time Potts said, "I may never need one but I wanted to clarify my position with Kent County Council. You never know what's round the corner!"
